Re: High Sierra FM Recordings
Finally have had chance to get with the folks at High Sierra on the issue of FM recordings on the archive. As suspected they now say they have no problem with the upload of FM recordings. They no longer sell the sets via festival live. So FM recordings are fine on the archive.
here is the e mail recieved:
Here's Grizzly's official position on that:
We believe the music belongs to the artists. Grizzly serves as a
catalyst to bring it to the masses, and that's it. Recordings off the
radio posted on archive.org or for trade on bittorrent trackers are
fine as long as they're strictly noncommercial recordings of "bands
that allow taping" and would otherwise be allowed for trade on those
sites. We would appreciate credit for it, but it's not necessary.
